Custom-Sized Natural Fiber Runner Rugs

Custom Sized Runner Rugs

For hallways and other narrow areas of your home, a natural fiber runner rug is a good option. You can even get a cut-to-size rug runner to fit unique spaces in your home. 

Here’s a guide to navigating natural fiber runner rugs.


Why Get a Cut-To-Size Rug Runner

Beyond simply the look of a room, there are many reasons why a cut-to-size rug runner can work in your home:

  1. Gives grip. Floors can get slippery, and rugs have always been there to combat falls. However, regular rugs don’t usually fit in narrow spaces. With a cut-to-size rug runner, you can get all the grip benefits of a rug but in a shape that works for the size of the walkway. And be sure to get a rug pad for extra slip protection!
  2. Protect floors. Runners can be used in high-traffic hallways or entryways to protect the floors. Natural fiber rug runners are durable, so they can protect the integrity of your floors for the long haul while standing up to the wear and tear of constant use.
  3. Comfort. It’s always nicer to step onto a comfy rug than it is to step on a cold floor. With a cut-to-size rug runner, you can get that comfort in any hallway in your home.
  4. Noise reduction. Certain areas of your home, like stairways and hallways, may be more echoey or just make more noise as people walk through them. Using a rug runner helps cut down noise in your home.
  5. Customizable. A custom runner means you never have to worry about your space’s size limitations. Instead, you give us the dimensions and angles you want and we can make you the cut-to-length runner that fits your home’s needs.

Where to use a natural fiber runner rug

Now that you know the benefits of cut-to-size rug runners, you’re probably eager to know all the places they can be used in the home. The short answer: everywhere! The key to using a natural fiber rug runner is to capitalize on more narrow areas in your home. Here are some of the best places to use a natural fiber runner rug:

  • Hallways
  • Kitchens
  • Stairs
  • Bathrooms
  • Mudrooms
  • Entryways
  • Next to your bed or between two beds

Best Materials For a Natural Fiber Runner Rug

Since rug runners are there to help you from slipping, it's good that whatever material you choose for your custom carpet runner not be too slippery. Luckily there are so many options. For a natural fiber runner rug, look into materials like sisal, wool, seagrass, and jute.
